The best kind of art day






Today was a lazy but fun day. I did what I wanted to, and it included sewing and collage. I have started a book for a swap with the amazing Heather of Creative Solace. I am psyched! I did another book a while ago, so here are pics of that, just to get my creative juices going. I haven't yet decided on the theme for the book, I am just doing backgrounds now, and I probably won't use all of them. A little hint... I have made some rusty cloth. A little cotton fabric, a little steel wool, a little water with vinegar in it, and poof! Colorful cloth. Kinda the color of my cats, maybe a little darker. Tomorrow I will clean and scrub, today has been very good.

All I can say is that I am thrilled to be swapping with you and after seeing this sampling of a previous book, I know I'm going to love the one you create for me!!
